More Christmas Happenings

The Queen Mama ventured to preschool with the Little Princess to make a gingerbread house.  We had so much fun icing and decorating.  We snuck a few of the goodies into our mouths when no one was looking, tee hee!

                                                      How sweeeeet is this picture?!!!

I love the look on Little Big Man's face, like "Did he just tell me I'm on the naughty list???"

My Sweet Princess at her Preschool Christmas Program in front of the Church Altar.  I am so thankful a Christian Preschool is available in my small town!

Miss B and I at her Preschool Christmas Program Celebration Reception.

We traveled to a store that puts on wonderful Christmas displays.  It was so crowded, this was the only picture I managed to get.

Christmas in Our Small Town

I hope you all had a Blessed Christmas.  We certainly did!  Our small town gathers around the Christmas tree in our tiny town square and celebrates the arrival of Santa Claus. He arrived this year in his new sleigh which was atop a flat bed truck! He got a police escort with sirens blaring and lights flaring.  The children were overcome with awe and joy!  Santa lit the town tree and then we followed him half a block to the fire station where the kids sat on his knee and whispered their Christmas wishes to him.  Everyone was given a special ornament commemorating the town for their tree.

Love these pictures~can't believe how fast time has flown and that The Champ and The Rock Star no longer sit on Santa's lap. Brings a tear to my eye!
Many blessings to you,
The Queen Mama

More Fall Small Town Living Fun

These are some great pics of the kids at another pumpkin patch, picking their pumpkins, going in a corn maze, and playing in the leaves at Grandma's house.  What a fun family day we had!

 These lovely flowers are from Princess B's field trip.  I love that farm!
 Look at the Pure JOY on their faces! Anticipating their jumping into the leaves at Grandma's!
 Forever a ham, The Rock Star!
 Go Little Big Man!
 My sweet oldest boy~Always meticulous at finding just the right pumpkin!
 Little Big Man could barely pick up his pumpkin, but he insisted on carrying it himself!
My favorite bunch of cuties at the end of the maze.

More Pumpkin Patch Fun!

Look at the fabulous antique wagon Princess is standing beside.  What a great display!
 Grandma and Little Princess walking through the corn maze.  This picture softens my heart every time I look at it.  They love each other so much!
 What a wonderful little country store they have for their patrons right on the farm! Look at all the fall goodies!  PS-I LOVE twinkle lights any time of the year!  They add that special something to nooks and crannies!
 Princess B playing in the kids' grain house.  She's right at home with the trucks~she's always playing with her brothers' toys at home!
 Yes, I let her pet the donkey, and Yes, we doused her with hand sanitizer as soon as she walked away!

Is that Princess B milking a real cow?  Nope, just looks that way!  How cute is that?!!!
And finally, a hay ride around the farm with lots of kid friendly Halloween displays along the way.  What a perfect ending to a perfect day! I LOVE small town living!
I hope you enjoyed your fall season, and if you don't have a change of seasons where you live, I hope you enjoyed my day on the farm!
Blessings to you and yours,
The Queen Mama

Fall Fun at the Pumpkin Patch Farm

Little Princess had a preschool field trip to the Pumpkin Patch.  It's located on a wonderful family owned farm about 25 minutes from our home.  My Mom and I took her and had a fantastic time! Enjoy the pictures of our small town day trip!
 Princess B~always happy to pose for the camera!
And me, The Queen Mama, loving some Fall Small Town Fun!

  Grandma even got in on the fun!

A Baby Changes Everything...

My dear friends, I am so sorry I have not kept you up to date since summer! Life has been wonderfully busy, and I have the best news ever!  We have a new baby in the house! We picked her up straight from the hospital at 17 days old.  She was going through methadone withdrawals, but is absolutely fine! We don't know how long she will be with us, but she is 1 month now, and we will love and cherish her as long as we have her!  I can't post a pic because of confidentiality reasons, but I will tell you that she is so precious and sweet and a true blessing to our family.  God is Good!  Please keep checking back for some great small town fall and christmas photos!
Blessings to you and yours,
The Queen Mama
